Pax

First justice.
Where is the manual?

If that doesn’t work?
What do we do?
Call out the Canadian National Guard?
We have a Canadian National Guard?
Well … Maybe not … But we have Grannies … Lots of Grannies … And more in training … All across North America. began in Canada … did you know?
One of these years we Grannies will be in the majority … Then just watch us! Hmmm … Who said that

What happened to the Canadian Guards? Does anyone know?
Does anyone Remember?
What if the Grannies adopted their badge and wore them for Canada?
Is there a song?

Hmmmm … Guess this Grannie will just have to write a song and call it Ad Mare Usque ad Mari. Errrr … How about Ad Mari first … Followed by Ad Mare … Does it make a difference? Does anyone ever listen to the words anyway?

No more than they ever listened to the Grannies … One might suppose there would have been some respect for the grannies who taught them … Or tried to teach them the value of a peaceful world. So where are all the grannies that were attached to the Canadian Guards

H… That song … Can’t forget the song … We really need a song.

To rally the grannies? That too. Most of all we need to show respect for the Grannies who stepped back and let others go ahead of them … who raised the children … Who built up the libraries and raised money for schools and churches … who worked for all those non-profit organizations … who dedicated their lives as volunteers … Making Canada a better place.
… Now those grannies need help. Who is helping the Grannies?

Ok let’s try to write the Ultimate Granny Song

Before every guard
There is a Granny
Singing loud and free
A mari usque ad mare

Beside every guard
There is a granny
Singing singing
Help us to …

Behind every guard
There is a Granny
Singing out singing out
A Mari usque ad mare

Though the Grannies were never honoured
Though no plaques
With their names appear
Be assured they did their share
To keep our country free

    • Then again … Do they really … Does anyone have a say except the one or two at the top who sign the checks … Then those down the line who cash the checks that are large enough to matter … Does the Granny at the end of the line really have a say …
      Consultations held across the country? Consultants are well paid …
      What about the people who are consulted? What about them?
      They are ones who ultimately pay the consultants salaries.

      Their real voices are rarely, if ever heard. The Grannies well know how this works.

  2. Then again …
    First they ask …
    How old are you?
    Then they ask …
    Male or female?
    Why?

    And they tell us they value our opinion …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to contribute our stories …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to do some artwork …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us for our music …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to grow their food …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us for our advice …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to mend their tears …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to watch their children …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to feed them cookies …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to do their laundry …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to feed their homeless …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    And they ask us to mop their floors …
    Which they expect to get for free.

    All this … And more … Bearing silent witness …
    Grannies of the world are getting old …
    Now the Grannies need help too.
